1 ballou48 3 months ago I have a 2014 Gretsch 6119 1962HT Tennessee Rose from Japan. It came with the Chet Atkins signature on the pickguard. I've heard that the first Japan models did not come with this signature because the builds weren't any good and Gretsch would not certify them, but as time went on the production became good and the signature was added again. Does anybody know if this is true? Now I've heard that there is a Professional Series that is made with quality parts and workmanship that comes with this signature. Anybody know?
